Band Camp

Band Camp! I loved making this card. The images in Avery Elle's Band Camp are so fun to color. I started by just by stamping and coloring all of the images. 


This band is rockin' it all the way through sunset. Because that's what you do at band camp, right?

The Scoop & More

Ice cream trucks are the best. Do you love them? I know my kids do. I wish the truck that drove around our neighborhood was as cute as the one from The Scoop. ;)


I had such a fun time decorating and coloring this truck and I LOVE the way the die cuts out the window of the truck. Clever, right?

It's so hard to choose a favorite from the Avery Elle release but mine might have to be That Bites. I mean, these fish...they are so cute, mean, ugly and adorable all at the same time. I can't wait to make more cards with them!

Ribbit Ribbit

Hey! I have a super cute card to share with you today! I love the new Avery Elle release and Ribbit Ribbit is one of my favorites.


I created this card with the two from images from the set. The background was created Kraft and Pure White pigment inks. There are so many fun ways to color these frogs...I'm lovin' the blue frog. Maybe a red or pink one will be next!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hot Chick & I'm Late

Hi Everyone!
I'm excited to share a couple of cards I made with Avery Elle's brand new release! 

First up, I used the mini set Hot Chick with coordinating dies


I layered some Distress Paint underneath the Scalloped Banner die and inked a little hill for the chick to work out on. I can't get over how fun this stamp set is! She is so cute and workin' it so hard. :)


Next up, is the adorable snail from I'm Late. My kids have been super in to snail racing lately (it really is funny) and this snail would be the life of their party. I love that the sentiments in this mini set are split up so I can use it for a "sorry I'm late" card or just for my snail lovin' kids. :) 

Thanks for stopping by!
